Former Congressman Opens Burger King

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

There's a new king in town.

A brand new Burger King opened for business at 1438 Grand Ave. on Saturday.

The proprietors are former Congressman Denny Rehberg and his wife Jan. The Grand Ave. restaurant is one of several Burger King locations the Rehberg's plan to start. Former Congressman Rehberg said a portion of the weekend's sales would go to benefit the Big Sky Honor Flight.

"It creates jobs. It's an opportunity to be a part of the community. And of course, having been a part of all 56 counties for as long as I was, it's exciting for me to be able to do business in as many of those counties as I possibly can," said Rehberg.

Other Montana towns where the Rehbergs plan to build include Laurel, Missoula, Kalispell, Hamilton and even Sidney.
